4 DEIB writing style guides for employee communications during Pride Month and beyond

DEIB Writing Styles

Diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) are a bedrock at Achievers. We are always striving to create a workplace where everyone belongs, and help other organizations foster a culture of belonging for their employees. This is such an important way to Change the Way the World Works together.

When we write, we take direction from those leading the way in the 2SLGBTQIA+ community on educating society about inclusive terminology.  These are some of our most valued and trusted writing style guides, which you may find useful for your employee communications during Pride Month and ongoing.

NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ Journalists promotes diverse and inclusive workplaces by holding the media industry accountable and providing education, professional development, and mentoring.
